    It's better it gets scraped than the bumper. It's a cheap replacement.
    Well it used to be 26 quid ish but now about 43 quid. I think I paid recently.
    It's good protection for your bumper.
    Plus the front of the car looks poo without it.
    Try approaching the bumps and ramps from an angle where possible. Much better clearance that way.
    It's what I do in car parks near me as mine is lowered.
    Helps lots.

    I was planning on lowering mine 30mm but forget it. Think I will just uprate the ARBs and leave it at that!

    I don't know. Mines lowered about 25 to 30mm it's not that bad. Car looks great.
    If you are patient then it's not an issue. If you want to hit speed bumps quickly then don't bother.

    Don't drive around Bath & Somerset, it must have the worst roads in the UK & with a lowered car I must swear every 10 mins at the trauma it puts my car through!:censored:

    I have taken mine off and spray painted twice to get some longevity out of it but its just takes a beating sadly, after ripping it off in a car park when I was parking once I am so much more careful

    I can't go into a couple of friends drives as the entrance is too steep from the road. No good reversing either.
    That's the price we pay for having such bad ass looking motors.
    I can live with that.
